Post Qurbani diet: The meaty badness
During Eid-ul-Adha, Muslims sacrifice a grazing animal, and distribute the meat amongst themselves, the poor and deprived people, relatives and neighbours. Many treats that are cooked in our homes. Here comes the time of the year when we get to eat meat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Starting from Eid day until a few weeks later, we continuously consume all kinds of food that includes beef or mutton. Beef bhuna, beef and mutton biriyani, beef kofta, reshmi kabab, shami kabab, beef korma, chaap fry, nehari and what not! The entire meaty feast sounds mouthwatering, right? But did you think about the calories that you gain through the process?

Health issues

If you didn’t know, it is healthy if your meat consumption is below100 grams per day, but anything beyond that can cause health issues. It’s a very common issue for people to rush to hospitals even on the second day! Stomach ache, indigestion, heaviness, high blood pressure with high cholesterol, and what not. Also, if you’re a heart patient or if you're diabetic, then you should consult a doctor about consuming meat.

Things that need to be followed post Eid

We all know how it becomes really hard to resist when you can smell the delicious biriyani from the kitchen. We feel like consuming all the delicious food on the dining table at a time, without even thinking how much we can actually stock in. We should go slowly on the consumption that contains fried meat and thick, creamy or oily gravy. Instead of this meaty badness, let’s go for baked or grilled meat, or which contains a low amount of oil. In the following weeks after Eid, it’s very important to include a bowl of salad without dressings in your lunch and dinner. Apart from salads, don’t forget your fruits as they are high in fibre and it will also keep you full. Make sure that you maintain portion sizes and do not go overboard during meal times. Avoid packaged and ready to eat foods. Include green tea, lime, and mint in your day to day diet. Don’t forget to eat fresh vegetables – they are easy to digest, light home cooked meals that include brown rice, daal, sautéed veggies, and clear soup.
